This review is from: SOL REPUBLIC 1601-30 Master Tracks Over-Ear Headphones - Gunmetal (Electronics)
The first time I heard about this brand was in Maxim magazine. I was already looking to buy some headphones but couldn't bring myself to spend $200+ for over-ear headphones that are endorsed by a certain Dr. I figured I would give these a try since everyone seems to have only good things to say about them and I have ZERO REGRETS! They're comfortable, light, not overly bulky, great at noise isolation by keeping your music in and foreign sound out, loud and have a very well balanced sound. I'm currently deployed and all my buddies ask me about my headphones because they're not Beats which seems to be the standard here. They usually say something like, "They're not as good or loud as my Beats" so I let them have a listen for a comparison and their eyes just light up because they hear highs and mids they never heard before. I'm not saying I'm some kind of audiophile but I used to install home theaters and audio systems for a living so I think I know a thing or two about quality balanced sound.
